Retired, mother of two, grandmother of four plus several step-grandchildren and lots of in-laws.
My favorite things to cook
Recipes scaled for one or two.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Rutabaga at holiday gatherings, Christmas mice made from maraschino cherries and candy kisses, Christmas eggs (these are the same as Easter eggs, but ball-shaped), Peanut butter daisy cookies at pool parties.
My cooking triumphs
Had a few flubs when son-in-law was new, and got teased about it. Then when I made a cherry cheese braid and he ate some he asked where I bought it and I had to make another right in front of him. Now he wants it often.
